Busy in Our Garden of Weeden

I hope you are all getting ready for the long Memorial Day weekend ahead!
My nephew Lucas is graduating from high school Saturday and then we are all going out for a nice dinner. The rest of the weekend is BBQ hopping :-)
I thought you may like to see some of my garden photos today so chose a couple pics to share! I'm fond of gardens with paths that meander here & there and are a little on the "wild side"! Cottage garden style with cute little accent pieces to move around as things bloom.

A rusty old chair to rest while weeding at a dead-end path.

No garden is complete without pink roses! Although I need to read labels more carefully so they do not get so big as to overgrow their trellis :-)

I like to mix contrasting colors in the garden that make each other pop!

The vintage red glider WAY in the back was a super curbside find!

My cute froggie is actually a birdfeeder and likes to hop all over the garden and hide!
I hope you enjoyed your visit today ~ please drop by again soon!

May all your weeds be wildflowers,



  1. Your garden is delightful! I love your pink roses...I have some roses(pink too!) that are taking over part of my garden but they are gorgeous so i can't complain! Enjoy the long weekend!

  2. Hi Lynn!!!
    It's been too long since your last post...I hope you ave just been busy creating!
    Pretty flower gardens! My little rose bush is blooming and the peonies too!
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Niece to see you posting again. Your garden is lovely. I love non-formal gardens with little paths and resting spots. Your pink roses are so pretty, I am going to try growing them in my side garden, hope they turn out as nice as yours.

  4. Sweet cottage garden. Like all the little places to sit and enjoy. Happy Memorial Day.

  5. Oh, what a charming garden, Lynn. Loved all th paths and the birdbath, the pink roses, everything. Nice job! Susan

  8. Hi Lynn,

    Nice to see a post from you, I was wondering where you had got to! I am not posting much either, I am a bit too busy to blog at the moment but I am enjoying looking at your gorgeous garden!

    Sending big hugs from across the pond.

  9. Just by chance I decided this morning to see if you had a new Post...Your gardens are a place of beauty & serenity. Not only can you sew with imagination, you can landscape with the talents of being a Master Gardener. My fav is the big cabbage yellow rose. Would that be a David Austin ?? I think your garden chair is "calling my name" to come and rest and contemplate life :)

  17. What a gorgeous garden...almost Eden! :) Thank you for the kind comments on my last post... I too am a "Chippy Ol' gal".

  18. “No garden is complete without pink roses!” You are right, Lynsey. Roses are one of the most beautiful flowers that we can have in our garden, but your garden has more than just roses – it is chockfull of lovely flowers! And they’re all beautiful! You certainly have a talent in gardening!
